Yup!

My co-worker owns a 2.5SL and last night someone stole his 2 side mirrors! Who the hell needs 2k2 side mirrors? He went into K-mart, and when he came back out 15 min later, they were gone.
He is sooo pissed.

The worst part it that he went to the dealer, and they are charging him $200 for each mirror and mounting bracket. They said that they have to get it directly from the factory!

Is there anyone who knows of a cheaper way to get new mirrors?

Crap

I think those mirrors are going to be a hot item, since the mirrors dont "colapse" like most new car mirrors.

They'll be breaking off, and them they'll get stolen. Especially if the car is as hot a seller as we all think they will be.

The 2000-2001 Altima mirrors don't fold either. I don't recall a stolen mirror(s) post before.

I don't know about the 2002 mirrors, but there is no way you can remove my 2000's fixed mirrors without just breaking them off the car and causing all sorts of damage and noise.

BTW, this would be covered under comprehensive through his insurance. He may have a $1000 deductible on collision (which is still ludicrous) but I don't think it's even possible to have a $1000 deductible on comprehensive. My comp deductible is only $50 and the comp portion of my insurance is only $59.50 per half.

Yup some idiot busted them off for the sport of it. There's no way they could be reused unless they were unbolted from inside.

Someone once broke the mirror off the pass. side of my work car in a parking lot. I found it on my wiper when I came out of the store.

No way!! Any idiot with a phillips screwdriver can take these off? If that's the case I'll replace mine with security Torx screws.

Idiot

Well, I do not consider myself an idiot, but, I also would not start pulling on plastic pieces that I do not know if they will come off or not. But, then again, i never tried to steal someones mirrors. I can not imagine, at this point in time, what someone woud do with them.............
